A heavily illustrated, high quality book that in its day must have been marketed mainly to marine architects. Many photographs and lithograph drawings of ships and ship's engines. Quite a few lines plans of ships and engineering drawings of engines. Concentrates on smaller vessels, particularly launches and steam yachts. Very good for researching American small marine engine design. Digitisation is crisp and clean, although the reproduction is too light, so reading is not easy.
